Subject: The people in the bushes say Lets make a highway!!
VERY short clip here with a dignitary curiously perched in the bushes talking, then another dignitary joins him, then a woman starts throwing branches into the crowd! After this, they install a street sign, each putting their own ceremonial patch of dirt into the ground to plant it in. Of course, all of this is too much for the crowd, who start frantically waving their hats around in glee! HUZZAH!

Yes, thats the whole film. 1 minute of delightful weirdness. A MUST SEE on this site!
